  Spread Betting Higher than 9918.0¢? or
  Spread Betting Lower than 9912.0¢?

Let's Say You Decide to Buy   Spread Betting Higher than 9918.0¢
You Select Your Stake Size, Let's Assume You Opt For £1 per cent
Now What?
  • You make a profit of £1 for every cent Johnson & Johnson pushes higher than 9918.0¢

When You Go Long With a Spread Bet Your Profits/Losses = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake

Johnson & Johnson goes higher and the market adjusts and moves to 10066.8¢ - 10072.8¢, i.e. on Financial Spreads you would see:   10066.8   10072.8
Close for a Profit? You could opt to keep your position open or close it in order to take your profit. In this case you opt to settle your position and sell at 10066.8¢.
Your Profits/Losses = (Closing Price - Opening Price) x stake
(10066.8¢ - 9918.0¢) x £1 per cent
148.8¢ x £1 per cent
Your Profits/Losses = £148.80 profit
 
Scenario 2
Johnson & Johnson drops and the spread betting market is adjusted and moved to 9789.1¢ - 9795.1¢, therefore you'd see:   9789.1   9795.1

Your Profits/Losses = -£128.90 loss
